of a negotiated peace. >> the israeli announcement come just hours after the u.n. voted overwhelmingly to grant palestine a non member observer status. nbc correspondent martin fletcher is live for us in tel aviv. martin what is the respect of this settlement announcement? do you think israel will really move forward with these plans? >> reporter: well, that's a good question, alex. they've announced these kinds of plans before, mostly to score political points publicly in this case, then really delayed things in the planning process and things haven't actually happened. i think this time there's a pretty clear need according to the israelis from what they feel to respond in some way to the palestinian's political success in the united nations general assembly. this is what they did. they announced they would building 3,000 new homes on land that the palestinians claim is theirs, and land that would be the subject of negotiations if there were any negotiations. so that's why hillary clinton and the united states -- and by the way many israelis, certainly all the palestinians are very upset. in
think it's this other thing. speculating on the cause is something that the three of us can do, she as u.n. ambassador, she had to deliver the talking points she was given. so i don't think it's fair at all she's being blamed for this. >> so, alisyn what do you think of paula broadwell, flirtatious, salacious, a vamp, jill kelley, sexy, seductive, what do you think about them and-- >> she's as well and two of her, she has a twin. and here is what i think, i think if these were short, fat, unattractive people who weren't in positions of power we would have lost interest in this. my feeling of the petraeus scandal it's like a music video and art house film and i feel something i look at it and the end of it what does it mean. i've yet to release the smoking gun, i mean, to the-- >> and here you have the men, these two powerful generals, john allen and david petraeus kind of the helpless victims to these sirens. >> y know, first of all, no one ever brought up, jill kelley, who i think in my personal opinion is a complete narcissist and a publicity hound. she actually, instead of going to the
of the dictator kim jung un. >> this is against the u.n. security council resolutions and we are monitoring the situation closely. and working very closely with the self-defense force and the ministry of defense. this is a dangerous situation. and we do not support those actions right now by north korea. bill: steven yates, sir, good morning and welcome back here to america's newsroom. it's been some time since we talked about this issue. now it's back and on the plate. >> any time you are dealing with long range missile capability it will be a concern. we have thousands of troops stationed in japan and korea. there is talk of being able to reach los angeles or the western coast. no north korean test so far has reached that near abroad. bill: what would korea want to prove with this launch? >> always dangerous to try to climb into the mind of a north korean leader. but there would have to be a domestic component to the situation. there are important elections taking place in japan on the 16th and south korea on the 19th of this month. well within the range of this test that is scheduled to

violation of a u.n. security council resolution, and we encourage the leadership in north korea to consider what they are doing here and implications in the overall security environment on the korean peninsula, as well as destination. >> anything new? we been hearing some rumblings for some time that there might be some activity on that front. anything new that you can provide in terms of insights into launches or things like that? >> well, i think you're tracking a pretty well. i think from the media today there are indications declared indications of their intention to do what they would call a peaceful satellite launch. and we believe it is in contradictory to the u.n. security council resolutions, that because of the nature of the type of missile they will be firing and the implications it has for ballistic missile type of activity somewhere down the road, and the destabilizing impact that will have on security incitement throughout the throughout the region, not just on the peninsula. >> can you follow up on some of -- was short assessment? they say they have solve whatever problems th
outside of the white house, outside different capitals of the world. at the end of the day, the u.n. process can be as good or as bad as the individual positions that national government bring from their different capitals to these negotiations. moving forward, one of the question we have to ask ourselves is, how much energy do we continue to put into this negotiating process, and how much energy do we put on the streets in the national capitals, in communities where people are feeling the impact already? >> how do you move from the anti-apartheid move into the anti-global warming movement? what was your trajectory? >> the struggle for human rights, the struggle to end the global poverty, giving the climate change, are two sides of the same coin. you can take the civil rights battle in the united states, and the right for women to vote, slavery, colonialism, if you add up all the different struggles, altogether, climate change, i would say, dwarfed them. what we are fighting for here is not the survival of the planet. the plan will survive. -- the planet will survive. we are fightin

not undercut actual wages paid to u.s. workers with similar levels of experience. i have witnessed over the last decade n scrupulous employers who dramatically eroded wages, not for competitive reasons, but solely to transfer wealth from workers to executives. they were successful only because workers were hungry for jobs and willing to work for nearly any wage. the medium household income dropped by $3,700 in that time while executive pay skyrocketed. even as our economy tanked. by contrast, the bill we are debating today does not include wage protections and does not adequately ensure that american workers are protected. equally important is that h.r. 6412 preserves the diversity visa program, ensuring equally opportunity to work in our great land. democrats and republicans alike have forwarded great wisdom towards this issue. now is the time to cooperate with one another and craft a truly bipartisan approach to immigration reform that provides for equality of opportunity for all of those who seek the benefit of u.s. citizenship. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's tim
